Transport Malta has suspended the Prime Minister’s ex-security officer Kenneth Camilleri after he was named by Melvin Theuma, the middleman in the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, as the now-infamous ‘Kenneth from Castille’ during a shocking testimony earlier today.
Camilleri was employed as Senior Manager Enforcement, starting his role on 1st February 2019, a Transport Malta spokesperson told Lovin Malta.
This means that up until today, Camilleri was working at Transport Malta. The Authority falls under the Transport Ministry, led by Ian Borg.
According to Theuma, who has been granted a presidential pardon in exchange for information, an OPM staff member called Kenneth fronted the offer to bail out the three men charged with carrying out the assassination and pay the €3 million required for their release.
Theuma believes that during their discussion ‘Kenneth’ called up Keith Schembri before informing him of the €3 million bail, believed to be an attempt to buy the men’s silence.
It should be noted that Theuma’s pardon hinges on a correct testimony.
PN MP Jason Azzopardi, who is the lawyer of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s family, then named ‘Kenneth’ as Kenneth Camilleri, who used to be a police officer before being appointed to the Malta Security Services by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat in 2013.
As revealed by Azzopardi, Camilleri also accompanied Neville Gafa, an OPM employee, during a mysterious visit to Libya.
He served for Muscat till 2019.
Theuma’s links to the government don’t stop there. He testified today that he was given a false government job moments after meeting Schembri at Castille. This meeting took place a few days after Theuma arranged the price for the assassination.
To this day, he still has no idea what the job entailed.
Meanwhile, Civil Service head Mario Cutajar has ordered an internal investigation into Theuma’s ‘job’ after his name couldn’t be found in the government’s employment records.
